"We hope, by exchange of information, to locate as many roosts as possible in Hampshire, and to persuade the public by displays, talks and so on that bats are not the macabre creatures horror films would have us believe, and that 'Bats Need Friends'." - Mike Dobson, HBG Founder (1984)

Hampshire Bat Group is a registered charity made up of volunteer members. As a partner group to the Bat Conservation Trust, we aim to promote and support bat conservation in Hampshire and to raise public awareness about these fascinating animals.  Bats need our help because their numbers have decreased drastically in recent years, mainly due to loss of habitat.

Please note that, as a matter of routine, Hampshire Bat Group does not undertake surveys for commercial purposes or to formally object to planning applications.
